Property Value


Returns a bool that represents the enabled state of the voice.


The value of the Enabled property is true by default. When an application calls GetInstalledVoices, the method verifies that each of the voices it finds in the registry meets certain minimum criteria. For any voice that fails verification, GetInstalledVoices sets its Enabled property to false. An application cannot select a voice whose Enabled property is false. Typically, applications will not set a voice's Enabled property.
